Art & History Museums - Maitland's Founder's Legacy Lives On in Call for Artists
Programs carry on tradition of artists community and help develop artists.
Maitland, Florida (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
When Andre Smith created The Research Studio, now a part of Art & History Museums – Maitland, he did so with the intention that the facility would be a community of artists. True to that legacy, the A&H has issued a new call for artists in several capacities.
- Artists in Action (Deadline June 20): This program provides non‐residential studio space at A&H’s Maitland Art Center to established or emerging artists for the professional practice and research of fine art. This program is an exciting opportunity to interact with A&H’s community of artists and art enthusiasts while working in this uniquely rich and historic environment. The AIA program is open to artists working in any medium.
- Call for Sculpture (Deadline June 20): Established sculptors are invited to submit artwork for inclusion in Art & History Museums - Maitland’s new outdoor sculpture garden. Two works will be selected for long-term loan for the exterior of the newly remodeled Germaine Marvel Building (GMB) on the Maitland Art Center campus located across the street from the Maitland Historical Museum.
- Artists in Residence (Deadline August 30): The A&H Artist-in-Residence program offers an unparalleled architectural environment with opportunities for seclusion, research, collaboration, and contemplation. The residency will cover all room costs and a stipend will be provided based on the length of stay. The artist-in-residence also will receive a one-person exhibition to be scheduled within two years at the A&H’s Maitland Art Center galleries.
A&H CEO and Executive Director Andrea Bailey Cox, views these programs as an integral part of the past, present, and future of the organization. “Not only was The Research Studio created based on a resident artist model, this artist’s community is something we view as vital to our growth as an organization. It enables us to bring fresh perspectives and works of art to our visitors while, at the same time, helping to grow the nation’s community of artist.”
